While her performances in films like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill will forever keep Uma Thurman in the cool category, on the red carpet she has had a lot of misses to go with her hits over the years. But everything is coming up Uma at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The 47-year-old actress, who is on the jury, has been showing her slaying power by rocking one hot look after another.

Perhaps the reason for Uma’s high-fashion looks at the film fest is her high-profile role there. She’s serving as president of the Un Certain Regard jury, a big honor in the movie world. Here, backstage at the Fashion for Relief event on May 21, she was also serving up some leg in a body-hugging strapless white gown featuring feathers and sparkles. (Photo: David M.

Walking those stairs takes extra effort, but Uma made her glam appearance at the Les Fantomes d’Ismael premiere on May 17 look truly effortless. Her off-the-shoulder dress, which showcased her long legs, was pure glam. And her hair, which she had cut when she touched down in France, was perfection.

If this isn’t a “look at me” outfit, then what is? For the Vanity Fair and HBO dinner at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on May 20, where she rubbed elbows with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Uma wore this lacy number. Her bangs were blunt, but she wore her hair wavy — and made waves in the process. (Photo: David M Benett/Dave Benett / Getty Images for Vanity Fair)
